Transformation Points: Redesigning Child Welfare to Help Youth and Families Thrive
April 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDTFree
The multiple crises that we have faced in 2020 and 2021, including the global pandemic and national and global racial justice reckoning, have accelerated thinking on transformation of the child welfare system. Throughout the country, jurisdictions are rethinking all aspects of the system, to make it more community-based, youth-centered, and responsive to families’ and communities’ needs.
Join Fostering Media Connections and Binti for an engaging discussion about how we can retool the child welfare system.
